Beyond the Filet of Fish corridor/gulley, the wall bends up hill and there is some more classic quartzite. This route follows an obvious crack that leads to a sloping ledge beneath a 45 degree headwall. Looks easy from the ground.

3 out of 5 stars Rastafarian or a different route?

Is this the same route as Rastafarian or a different route? Rastafarian is up the gully above Fillet o Fish/Enduroman. Scramble up the gully a bit and there is a broken left tending crack/flake system on the left hand wall. It also looks pretty easy from the ground. Rarely done, a bit dirty, a bit of loose rock, but is still a fairly quality route. Ends at two fixed stoppers with quicklinks on them. Lowering/rapping from here will drop you about 20-25 ft left of the start (look left at the spectacular detached pillar!)
